Race start is 12:30 on Saturday, March 19th!
Starting at the PEC (69 Union Street), each contestant must make their way to and from McDonald’s (CFB Kingston) under their own power. Each contestant must independently consume a meal consisting of one large fries, one large coke (or sprite), and a double big mac. Meals will be pre-ordered. The food must be consumed at the tables outside, and contestants cannot leave until approved by race officials. The Phys-ed symbol on the ground outside the PEC is the start/finish line. Any competitor who pukes at any point during the race must run a penalty lap by going straight through the finish line to University street, take a right to Earl street, following to Division street and then taking a right back to Union before being able to finish at the PEC. No external help is allowed for athletes at any point during the competition.
Happy Meal Fun Run
The same rules apply as above except the required meal now consists of a McDonald’s McNugget happy meal. Competitors will also be required to carry their happy meal toy with them on the second leg of the run, and present it at the finish line in order for results to be official. Failing to present the happy meal toy will result in a hefty time penalty.
Placings of the top 4 finishers from each complete team will be summed as per the standard cross country meet. Displacers will be used to resolve a possible tie. Competitors on the same team cannot physically assist their teammates in any way.
- Food must be consumed as prepared by the restaurant (no removing pickles, etc). Dietary requirements will be dealt with and approved on an individual basis.
- No intestinal performance enhancements or other drugs that may assist in stomaching the meal will be permitted.
- In the case of dietary restrictions, meal substitutes of similar volume/caloric content may be consumed if approved by organizing committee prior to entry deadline.
